Stud co-principal Jan Robinson said it was an unusual sale with the bulls that sold under the hammer selling "very well".

She said the majority of the bulls passed in were sold by the end of the day.

Mrs Robinson said the fire season had impacted the sale with their usual buying support from the Upper Murray not present this year.

She said the bulls had presented well despite a "shocking season" in NSW where the bulls ran since weaning.
